    It’s that time of year when we get more thunderstorms. Weather patterns are more active, and storms thrive with the moisture and rapidly rising warm air that is very common during the transition to warmer seasons.

  • There is a new face at the Owen County Cooperative Extension Office this summer. Ashley Craigmyle, a resident of neighboring Henry County, began her 12-week internship with the Owen County 4-H Program May 23. She will work through the summer until mid-August.

  • The Memorial Service for Aunt Bess, after months of planning by her daughter Ellen via phone and email from her home in Missouri, came together beautifully Sunday.

    I have a very small arsenal of insecticides and what I do have are considered bio-insecticides. Bio-insecticides are derived from naturally occurring microorganisms like bacterium. They also include plant oils and compounds (like neem oil which acts as both an insecticide and fungicide), viruses and protozoa. When we use a bio-insecticide we are essentially using nature to eat nature.

  • After the Revolutionary War until well into the 19th century, a group of dedicated stalwart men traveled the wilderness of America to spread the Gospel throughout the newly formed republic.

    With Bible in pocket and gun in hand, early circuit riding preachers left an indelible mark upon America and the American people; and through their untiring efforts they fanned the flames of religious fervor that spread across the land like a wildfire.

    A woman came home to find her retired husband waving a rolled up newspaper round his head.

    “What are you doing?” she asked.

    “I’m swatting flies,” he said. “So far, I’ve gotten three males and two females.”

    Puzzled, his wife asked how he knew which gender they were.

    “That’s easy,” he explained. “Three were on my recliner, and the other two were on the telephone.”

  • I’ve been thinking a lot about the Serenity Prayer.

    That’s the one that goes: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”

    Although the prayer is often attributed to St. Francis, it was written in 1926 by Reinhold Niebuhr, a Lutheran theologian.

    Fun fact: Niebuhr also wrote one of my favorite quotes about humor being the “prelude to faith” and laughter being the “beginning of prayer.”
